Why Lesson Planet?
Should Turkey be admitted to the European Union? Before debating this question, class members research the background and stated purpose of the EU, read articles of Turkey's bid to become a member of the EU, and the concerns other countries have about Turkey's membership.
- Have class members research how immigrants into Turkey impact the current EU/Turkey debate
- Establish a protocol for a safe, respectful discussion of controversial issues
- The four-page packet includes an overview of the lesson, links to required maps, reference materials, and handouts, discussion questions, and activities
- Considerable research time would be required for class members to conduct an informed debate
